The Singletrack bar caps have touched down. Made by the guys over at Straitline Components. Online in the STW Shop shortly - only available to our lovely Subscribers.http://www.straitlinecomponents.com/Action Station workbench waiting patiently to be assembled. Magura Thor back from being fettled at Magura UK to remove slight top-out. Giro Atmos with "interesting" colouring upon its rear.Bontrager's new range of shoes have arrived in the UK. Piing! clip-on bell from Zefal. We like little things like this just as much as the big toys. Shimano XT Rapidfires for Benji's Cannondale Prophet. Hopefully they'll sit next to Hope Tech V2 levers better than Sram triggers. Ashima are a new name to these shores. Started by an Englishman in the Far East. Here's their lightweight rotor and dual compound SOS disc pads (sintered-organic-sintered - geddit?) Bontrager are now doing Slime-filled tubes. Quite hefty things they are as well. Prologo Vertigo Max complete with Union Jack motif (it's also been embroidered with "Singletrack" on the rear - thanks chaps!) Giro Convert shades (in bronze fade / brown).Related posts The Canyon Experience – Riding bikes, touching priceless cars, meeting legends.

Ben_Haworth February 6, 2009 at 12:18 pmMrNutt – Yep, we have a pair of Ashima rotors in 180mm and 203mm on test. MrSmith February 6, 2009 at 12:33 pmthat picture of the box of bontrager tubes is piss-poor. C- lazy, must do better.

IHN February 6, 2009 at 1:13 pmAn Englishman making aftermarket brake pads in the far East. What could possibly go wrong? 😉 ChrisL February 6, 2009 at 2:02 pmWell it’s nice to know I wasn’t the only one who found a top-out clunk with their Thor… Militant_biker February 6, 2009 at 2:11 pmI’ve been running the 203mm Ashima rotors for a few months now, (edinburghbicycle have had them in stock for a while :)) I popped them on my DH wheels – cos they needed some rotors.They are excellent, in a word. They clear brilliantly in mud, and the bite is, I reckon, better than the standard Hope floating rotors on the Mono M4. They’re lighter as well, IIRC. ononeorange February 6, 2009 at 3:31 pmSlime filled tubes – how hefty (in grammes) is “hefty” please? elaine anne February 6, 2009 at 7:00 pmthose shades would be a perfect colour for my bike, but in general im wondering people would prefur ‘go- faster’ ‘red’ ? showerman February 6, 2009 at 9:35 pmi run slim tubes on both bikes now for over a year, not 1 flat yet so a big thumbs up from me. only down side choose your pressure right as letting air out gets you all mucky rickmeister February 7, 2009 at 9:34 amDibs for bar ends please… gold if poss……….. twohats February 9, 2009 at 1:22 pmAnybody can order custom laser etched bar caps from Straitline, lots of colours avaiable too. why anybody would be frothing over STW ones is beyond me?
